JAMESTOWN – The North American Hockey League announced on Tuesday that the Jamestown Rebels have been sold and will be relocated to New Jersey.
In an announcement by the league, the team was sold to new ownership and will play their home games out of Hollydell Ice Arena, 15 miles South of downtown Philadelphia in Washington Township, New Jersey.
The team relocated from Philadelphia originally in 2018 and have since spent the past few seasons playing in Jamestown at the Northwest Arena.
In a statement by league Commissioner Mark Frankenfeld, the league thanked previous Rebels owner Ken Dennis for his involvement as an owner in the NAHL the past decade.
“This is an exciting step for the NAHL to get back into the Philadelphia-area market and the Hollydell Ice Arena is a wonderful facility with amenities that the NAHL team will enjoy. We expect the tradition of success and advancement that the Rebels have established to continue under new ownership” said Frankenfeld.
The Jamestown Rebels finished its 2021/22 season by making the playoffs but eventually ended up losing in the divisional championship to the New Jersey Titans.
